The Mcginn residence overlooks the town of Port Douglas  the Inlet and the Mountains.  The site is oriented toward the North West, hence dictating the dominant verandahs  wide overhangs and protected walls.

Spaces have been allocated on three levels to logically separate the functions;
The top level is occupied by the main bedroom, ensuite, walk-in robe and balcony  terrace.

This has been made possible by the  fragmented pyramid roof forms, allowing this space to rise above the remaining structure.

Another feature is the indoor outdoor relationship of the rooms. Living spaces open on to the verandah with fold back doors or become an outdoor room via sliding glased panels
